Hi, I've downloaded the template to try to make my own attack ring, any advice on how to add my custom bits to the template to make my custom attack ring? I'm looking forward to you possibly making a blade base template too.

Hey shishiRanger,
Glad to hear you're keen to have a go at it :) I used 123d design to make most of my beyblade designs. You could use any program, eg, blender, auto desk maya, etc

start off with having the template flat on the grid.
Create a cylinder around the attack ring. Adjust the size of the cylinder accordingly to what kind of blades you want to design. Delete the middle faces on the cylinder so you just have the circle going around the outside perimeter of the radius.
Once you have the larger outside cylinder, you can start cutting some geometry into it to create the desired shape you like for your blade.
Just keep adding onto it and working from what you have and see what you come up with :)
Use old cartoon blades as reference to making some new cool blades :)
Hope this helps you. If you're still stuck let me know and I'll try make a video :)
As for the blade base, I said to myself I wanted to create a whole blade (all components), but recently I have started studying game art and animation, so I have been a bit busy with that but I am going to create the other components in the near future! :)
Thanks for your message and can't wait to see your custom blade :)

What would the best plastic material to use for the attack ring and what tools would be best for modifying the cylinder?

Any really. Just print the one you want to use for battle with 100% infill. I have noticed the honeycomb infill effects how the blade spins and slows it down a lot so use 100% for a solid print and it will be good for battle. I used PLA on my draciel and charizard beyblade and they work very well.

What would be the best tools for cropping the cylinder & then adjusting it to the format I want to use for the attack ring?
